Two trainees qualify into solicitor roles


Two trainees at Sintons have taken on permanent roles with the firm after becoming qualified solicitors.

Ben McMurdo and Charlotte Gunn have both completed their training contracts with Sintons following two years of experience gained in departments across the firm.

Ben now becomes a solicitor in Sintons’ specialist commercial team, with Charlotte taking up a role in the wills, trusts and estate department.

Ben and Charlotte are the latest trainees to be offered permanent roles with Sintons after qualification, with the firm having a long track record in supporting the development and careers of young lawyers in the region. Indeed, many of the current senior figures at Sintons began their careers as trainees with the firm.

The development of the current aspiring solicitors at Sintons continues, with the firm’s first and second year trainees, alongside its solicitor apprentices, moving to new seats for the next six months as part of their ongoing development.

Second year trainees Emily Richardson, Amy Carlton and Leigh Garbutt move to corporate, Court of Protection and dispute resolution respectively; first year trainees Lucy Milnthorp, Edward Pattinson and Charles Bell take up roles in real estate, employment and real estate respectively.

Among the solicitor apprentices, Leah Greenwell moves to neurotrauma, Saffron Sinclair joins construction, Nathan Johnson remains in real estate and Sabrina Jackland remains in neurotrauma.

Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Firstly, congratulations go to Ben and Charlotte on their qualification. We are delighted to offer them roles within the firm after they have worked so hard over the past two years within our team and on behalf of their clients.

“Supporting the next generation of legal talent is of great importance to us at Sintons and is a commitment we have maintained for many years. Our graduate trainees and solicitor apprentices are a vital part of our team, and form a vibrant and dynamic group in their own right which is central to our fundraising activities through the annual Trainee Challenge.

“We are very pleased to see our current trainee group doing so well and working hard to progress in their careers. Ben and Charlotte will now hopefully go on to enjoy long careers with us, and we hope to welcome others into the role of solicitor in the future.”
